Australian Pool Players Association

How did APPA come into existence?


American pool in Australia is a growing market. After running many successful tournaments for all levels of play over the past 10 years I was personally approached in late 2019 by the current President of the Australian Pool Players Federation to discuss the future of the APPF.


The APPF organisation had various challenges with only a small number of people who could dedicate the time to govern and improve the sport at a national level.
I was asked to assemble a team that would be able to modernize the brand, events, provide national governance, produce appropriate documentation and policies with a view to Sports Australia recognition.


It has been an absolute mammoth task with countless hours of working on weekends, late nights and Thursday evening team meetings. On June 30, 2020, the APPA was officially incorporated with the NSW Department of Fair Trading and recognized as the National Sporting Organisation for American pool in Australia. 
I would like to personally acknowledge the APPA team for their personal efforts and ask that all the players to join their new association with a view to an exciting and transparent future with great opportunities for our cue sport community.
